What is the use of Kenacort cream
Mouth ulcers are tiny, uncomfortable sores that can make eating, drinking, and even speaking difficult. They can develop on the inner lips, gums, tongue, palate, or roof of the mouth.
The brain chemicals responsible for pain perception and inflammation are inhibited by Kenacort 0.1%.
As a result, it reduces oral ulcers' pain, irritation, and inflammatory symptoms like swelling and redness.
How does Kenacort cream work
As previously established, the active element in Kenacort 0.1%, a steroid, is Triamcinolone.

It achieves the purpose of treating mouth ulcers by sticking to the wet surfaces of the mouth and creating a protective covering over the parts that are wounded or have ulcers.
